    I’m having a ball right now :D searching for a PC laptop

    i’m torn between a dell inspiron 6000 or a Sony FJ1Z

    both have up points and i’m fairly evenly balanced between the 2 ..

    i’d just love to find out how fast the sony HD is .. there’s nothing around in the spec( this makes me think it might only be 4200 rather than 5400 or 7200)

    is there any way i can check .. system profiler…
    i can drop round to a shop and have a poke around tomorrow then :D

    ta !

    id say it prob 5400, very few 4200 knocking about in modern laptops i would suspect.

    looking at the sony range, i’m surprised how many 4200 they are selling … i’ve been told the steps to check anyway :D

    might get myself a laptop today if all goes well then :D

    While I like the Sony laptops I really wish they’d give you the proper installation CDs instead of reserving 7GB for a daft backup system. Especially since it restores a lot of the crap they install as standard.

    Wow thats silly, speaking of silly – have you seen Sony’s software for their mp3 players – its ridiculously complex and unfriendly.

    That reminds me, new nVidia drivers means another chance to get Dreadnought running, sw00t!

    Congrats on the purchase fitch, theres nothing like the feeling of buying a new PC…then again this is a student talking so my opinions are slightly warped… :D
